Why do we download to HDD's?
In reply to MPA1, Sep 29, 2013

OK. You go somewhere and shoot a few thousand images. Now, you could just get a few storage cards and keep the images there. What's wrong with that?

If you just use a couple of cards and transfer everything to a hard drive, you stand the chance of losing everything to a hard drive failure; this is going to be more likely if the drive is getting banged around.

If I were going somewhere remote and taking lots of pictures that would be difficult to replicate, I would take enough cards to store all the images I was expecting to take and back them up to a hard drive; I think the cards are safer storage than the drive.
